Fabulous Florets Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This is the card I made for today's Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers.  I really look forward to these sketches.  Sometimes I struggle with them and other times they seem easy.  I like to try to make them so they don't have a lot of bulk to them so they can be mailed with only one first class postage stamp.  

For this card I used the "Fabulous Florets" set.  The words are from the "Hugs & Wishes" digital download.  Though I do have the set I thought I would play with the digital one since you can resize it more to fit your needs.  

I stamped the images using VersaMark and then embossed them with white embossing powder.  Once it was heat set I then cut them out by hand.  For the bottom panel, the 4b part I used ribbon.  I took my x-acto knife and made a couple of slits in the layers and inserted the ribbon through them and taped them on the backside.  Then I taped that layer on top of the black card stock so no one can see the tape job!

On the #2 piece I used Whisper White and used the Dotted Swiss embossing folder.  I wanted that area white but yet I wanted it a bit textured and the Dotted Swiss was just what it needed.

On the 4b spot I used 2 pieces of the 1/8" ribbon.

It was a very fun sketch to do and I think I would use it again for other images.   Maybe on images that I would just stamp on the #4a part instead of cutting something out and adding it on top.  I'm sure I have lots of sets that would fit in that #4a spot!

If you have time give the sketch a try.  I'm off to cut the sketch out and add it to my sketch album!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

I love your card, Wanda. I have that stamp set and have used it - so will try to case your card, to some degree.
